I attached a new SATA hard disk. Since then, Grub always entered into emergency mode. If I detach the hard disk, Fedora boots without problems. When I logged in and then attach the new disk again, I can access the disk.

My setup is the following:

  • one SSD containing the OS and grub
  • one hard drive containing /home/
  • the new hard disk

BIOS detects the disks correctly and the boot priority is also correct. Grub is even listing all OS correctly. It's an old BIOS, so no UEFI.

Booting Windows 10 via Grub works fine.

Can you tell me how that happens and what I might do? Thanks in advance!

I switched the SATA ports and now the problem is gone.

I formatted the hard disk with ext4, one primary partition, GUID partition table.

It's hard for me to understand your answer(s). What do you mean with "another boot list mixed"? I don't have any problem

@MikeCZ Could you convert your comment to an answer? RVM worked for me quite well, so I would accept this answer. Thanks!

@aeperezt: Thanks for the info! The installation failed this way, too. I removed everything and only installed rubygem-bundler and ruby and then ran a bundle install in the app folder. This didn't change the outcome. The variable $APP_PATH is empty, see post @MikeCZ: Thank you! I read about rvm, but was unsure if this is a good way. Care to elaborate how to use RVM in Fedora? Thank you very much!

2015-09-22 11:59:54 -0500 asked a question How to properly install Ruby on Rails on Fedora 22?

I recently tried to install Ruby on Rails on Fedora 22 x64 and I don't get webbrick to start. I did the same installation on Fedora 22 x86 and it worked right away.

Steps I performed:

  • installing rubygem-rails and ruby-devel
  • creating a new application via rails new my-app (successfully)
  • bundle install in the new app folder
  • starting webbrick via bin/rails server

Error message I got:

bin/rails:6: warning: already initialized constant APP_PATH

I had some problems with nodejs installed in parallel, so I removed nodejs. Unfortunately, this didn't workout.

I'm quite confused by the bundling of rubygems in Fedora, as some of the gems are available via dnf. Should I prefer to install these instead of local installation via bundle install? How can I properly install Rails?

Additional info:

$ echo $APP_PATH

2014-03-11 07:36:21 -0500 commented answer How to install Node.js in Fedora?

Currently, the installation fails on F20 because of broken dependencies. The v8 library is newer than required by nodejs. Here's the package site https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/nodejs

2013-01-03 04:58:42 -0500 asked a question Does yum use p2p via metalink?

I recently discovered that yum uses metalink for looking up several package sources. As far as I know, metalink is also enabled to use torrent or other p2p technologies to get the required data (see Wikipedia on Metalink).

My question is now: Does yum use p2p technologies to get packages and updates? If yes, does my Fedora installation also send packages I previously downloaded?
